Palm Sunday Mass Schedule


Our Lady's Chapel

4301 Broadway
San Antonio, TX 78209

Palm Sunday concludes the Lenten season and marks the beginning of Holy Week with the commemoration of Christ's triumphant arrival in Jerusalem. As Jesus entered the city on a donkey, the crowds cheered and threw palms in front of him as a sign of homage. Palm branches were recognized as a symbol of peace and victory.  Waving them in acknowledgment of someone was a custom reserved for people of great respect. Who would have known that only days later Christ would be crucified to his death?

We receive blessed palms today as we ritually participate in Christ's arrival in Jerusalem. Because these palms are blessed, they should not be discarded at the end of the celebration, but either taken home or returned to the church. Typically, left-over or discarded blessed palms are incinerated to create the ashes for the following year's Ash Wednesday services.

Masses will be held in Our Lady’s Chapel at 10:30 AM and 8:00 PM.
